It's Sonny Landreth.

I know this because Clapton himself told me so in the video at 7:03.

Jeff Beck? He's listed in the info under the video and is the only one who remotely resembles that guy.

It's Sonny Landreth for sure, because bikeboy389 told me what Eric Clapton said.

Been around for a long time - was in John Hiatt's band the Goners for a couple of albums, and is a big time studio musician in both Nashville and LA. Has released several albums of his own as well.

even without Mr Clapton's announcement, it's Sony Landreth, no doubt. Phenomenal slide guitarist from Louisiana, good friend of John Hiatts and one of the Goners.

I saw him at Taste of Madison one year.....I have one of his albums .....he is really good. INCREDIBLY distinctive style...

I actually got to talk to him before his set, he is a very soft spoken, modest man. He was concerned about following Marcus Bovre and the Evil Twins......

He did an album with Eric Johnson recently, or Johnson appeared on a track or two.
